Gone are the days when a group puts on a press conference or makes a final performance on a TV special to announce a breakup. Now, it’s apparently done on Twitter, as the Jonas Brothers’ account is no more.

Last week, two days before Nick, Joe, and Kevin were set to kick off their tour in Pennsylvania, the Jonas Brothers canceled the whole thing due to a “deep rift within the band, and a big a disagreement over their music direction,” according to their rep Jesse Derris. Now, it seems the rift has expanded — on social media, anyway — as their official Twitter account has disappeared, sparking a frenzy of speculation from fans as to whether the band is calling it quits.

While the brothers have not commented on why the Twitter account was deleted, their individual accounts — @nickjonas, @joejonas, and @kevinjonas — are still intact.

When contacted by EW, representatives for the band had no immediate comment.
